Research Institution
There is a need for small, low cost, wireless sensor platforms for in situ monitoring of missiles and other assets. These highly integrated sensor platforms should be small and energy efficient enough to operate on a single battery for a period of fifteen years. The objective of this work is to develop a 1 cubic inch wireless sensor platform with integrated temperature, humidity, and 3-axis shock sensors, provisions for connection of remote sensors, HERO compliance and with a wireless interface that meets the existing requirements of TR-AMR-SG-06-34. In addition to the sensor platforms, we will develop a hardware and software interface required to allow the platforms to communicate with an existing handheld interrogator. The proposed concept pushes the state of the art but leverages Sporian’s previous work on energy efficient wireless sensor network hardware and software. The effort maximizes use of existing components and technology to reduce overall development risk. Work tasks include the evaluation of several novel concepts to reduce platform size and minimize energy consumption, and will result in a preliminary system design and proof-of-principle prototypes. The work will be performed through a partnership between Sporian Microsystems, Titanium Mirror, Inc. and Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems and Sensors division.
